Vorhees (N.J.) Eastern Regional offensive tackle Phil Trautwein was so excited following his official visit to Florida that he was ready to commit as soon as he could talk things over with his family. Four days later, is he still a Gator lean?
"It's between Florida, Virginia and Michigan State," said Eastern Regional head coach Dan Spittal. "He is keeping very quiet about things. Virginia's academics are a strong pull along with his ex-teammate, Lance Evans. At Florida, the SEC tie is inviting and Michigan State has coach Stoutland, who is a great recruiter."
Trautwein was thinking about taking an unofficial visit to Rutgers this weekend as well, but his coach isn't sure about that.
"Hopefully he will decide by Saturday," said Spittal. "Coach Zook is coming in today to see him and that will be the last of the coaches I think."
Trautwein is ranked as the No. 28 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 9 player in New Jersey by Rivals.com. He also visited Tennesse and Boston College, but both schools have been eliminated.
